Leaving bricks insight will always be a trend both indoors and outdoors, and being part of the decoration is not only enough to leave them natural or apply a fun color. The idea is that in the medium or long term, they do not present moisture problems. In the post, we explain how to protect the bricks and also what details you should consider if you are going to apply paint to them.
Moisture prevention tip
Clean the surface with a stiff-bristled brush, vacuum the dust or clean well with a cloth.
Apply the paint, maximum of two coats, and respect the drying times between coat and coat according to the instructions on the product label. Remember that as it is a non-plastered (flattened) brick, the surface becomes even more porous, so it is necessary to apply the paint with a long-hair roller so that the color penetrates well and remains uniform.
